I'm sorry for stopping posting for a while. But now I'm back and more motivated than ever:)
My dad has recently sorted out his wardrobe and gave some of his old suit trousers and jackets to me.
Here is the first trial to recycle an old trouser into a dress.
What you need: trousers, scissors, thread, tailor's chalk and needles
|Ladder the inner seam of the trousers completely.|
|Put the trousers on like a dress and mark with pins the center front seam.|
Make sure where you want your neckline to start and mark it aswell.
|Mark the center front seam with tailor'chalk so that you know where you have to sew. (I took a biro because of the white feeding).|
|Having sewed the center front put on the dress agail and mark on the outer seam of the trousers where you want your arm holes. Ladder the seam between the tags and secure the ends with thread..|
|For the back of the dress turn it inside out and place it flatly on the table. Draw a line frow where the bow of the former pattern starts to the point, where you want to start the rear neckline. Sew the center back.|
|This is the finished dress:)|
I like it because of its balloony shape. I think you can wear it to work and to party.
Have fun trying it out! It takes only one hour.:)
